Our black box insurance covers young drivers aged 17-30 as the main driver of their own car. For drivers aged 17-21, all we ask is that a parent or guardian is added as a named driver.
We provide comprehensive cover for full and provisional licence holders on cars up to 25 years old in most UK postcodes, excluding Northern Ireland.

Cancelling your policy

Cancelling within the first 6 months
Cancelling after 6 months

We hope you’ll stick with Marmalade, but if you decide to leave us within 6 months of the policy start date, here’s what to expect:

    • If you cancel your policy within 6 months of the policy start date, the cancellation charge will be £88.13. This includes the insurer charge, of £25 + 12% IPT, and a Marmalade charge of £60
    • The same charges apply if you cancel your policy within the 14-day cooling off period.
    • In the event of a claim being made, regardless of when the policy is cancelled, the full insurance premium is payable and there will be no refund given.
    • If Marmalade or our underwriters cancel the policy, we will refund the part of the initial premium, payable by you, and the cancellation fees shown above will only apply if you have not adhered to the conditions of the policy.
    • If we declare your policy void on the grounds of fraudulent activity, we will be entitled to keep any premium you have paid.

Other fees and charges

Making changes to your policy
Replacing the telematics tag

    • If you make changes to the policy during the policy term, we will charge up to £15 to make a mid-term adjustment.
    • At the time you contact us to make the change, we’ll let you know the total price to be paid, including any fees, taxes and charges separately from the premium, so that you know the full breakdown before any changes are completed.
